Mbabane, Swaziland
During the day time streets of Mbabane, the capital of the Kingdom of Swaziland, are full of people and bustling with life. When the sun goes down people disappear and cars take over the streets that are not safe for walkers anymore.

In towns there is organiced waste collection. But rural areas the waste management is basicly taken care by burning everything up. Organic waste is naturally given to animals but everything else is either burnt or thrown to nature. This picture is from a house’s frontyard where a great waste manager is taking care that there is nothing eatable left.

This herd of elephants had come to a waterhole at the time of the sunset. They had babies with them and some of the babies were so tiny – tiniest elephants I’ve ever seen. Close by there was also a lion but that lion wasn’t a thred to these elephants because she had already got her supper.

Why 63% of people in lower middle-income country are living under the national poverty line? Why 20-30% of 1,1 million people living in a country need food assistance at some level? Why government can’t take care of it’s citizens? Bad policy? HIV? Changing climate? Greed?

One Reason Why I Love Africa

One reason why I love Africa

Mbabane, Swaziland
This painting-like image I have taken from a backyard of Sibebe View Cottages (a nice little B&B) towards Pine Valley. And this is why I love Africa. This indescribable beauty takes my breath away. The softness of the hills and evening sun. What else I could say?

In this situation you really want to stay inside! Baboons are cheeky. They’ll steel everything they can. Especially food. Thay might be agressive too. Once in Zambia a baboon tried to steel my camera which was hanging around my neck. We had a battle about which one of us is bigger and scarier. I won (because I can be really scary) and the baboon run away. Baboons are fun to watch but not so fun to confront.

Sorry about the poor quality of the photo. It was a quick snapshot through a buswindow.
